Just wondering if anyone is still interested in hacking this.
A few people started a new forum but I think have abandoned it. The focus seemed to be on building custom editing tools.
I don't think a bunch specialized editing tools are necessary. An HL2 editor is not really needed. GCFScape is probably the only tool that is needed.
Much can be accomplished with a few simple hex edits and then use scripting.
The scripting works well and is mostly the same as the PC version.
Using scripts you can make all kinds of new aliases and call other scripts to do all kinds of crazy stuff.
How about a script to dissolve enemies/objects ? I made one that works.
Set any enemy on fire.
Remove locked doors.
Remove the hud for screen shots.
Spawn just about any object.
Make triggers and triggered actions.
These are just some examples.
I still enjoy this game even though it's older and does not run as smoothly as on the PC platform.
I was hoping there might be a few die hard game hackers out there that might still be interested in hacking it.
